'm very hopeful that we can get this passed. >> dana milbank writes in "the washington post". obama on guns too little too late. on almost every topic from budget negotiations to national security, washington seems only to act these days in response to crisis if it acts at all. obama errored in trying to use newtown to build support for his positions on taxes and energy and immigration and he compounded the error by sending j joe biden to conduct a study. once the president took his foot off the accelerator no other action not even michael bloomberg's ad campaign to maintain the momentum. mark kelly has been, obviously, outspoken advocate on gun control legislation and he has been going around and buying guns and showing how long it takes to fill out a background check. i think it was like five minutes and 36 seconds, just if you care. if you can wait five minutes and 36 seconds for your gun. >> so i'm hearing behind the scenes there is still a deal that is being worked on universal background checks but yesterday it sound like it might be dead. >> they are still trying to figure ou

control. columnist dana millbank in today's "washington post" points out obama made an impassioned bid this week to revive prospects for gun control legislation but it's difficult to escape the conclusion that his efforts come too late. as dana says harry reid had to drop the plans for legislation on the assault weapons ban, and large clips because the support wasn't there, would that have happened regardless of the president maybe not having been pushing this agenda as he should have been? >> well, i think it would have happened regardless of any president. i mean the truth of the matter is that the nation's attention span is -- we -- it's very thin and we've forgotten pretty quickly. so i think that's why you saw the white house and the president this week sort of on this reminder tour, not just on gun control, but on immigration,age other things. you know, he spent so much time focused on sequestration and he was in israel last week he sort of aimed to bring it back this week and say, hey, we haven't forgotten. these are still my priorities. but you know, congress and washington doe

washington. peter? >> that's right. sources confirm the obama administration launched a broad push to get mortgages to people with weaker credit records and provide banks with a taxpayer guarantee that they won't make their payments. sources say the administration is working with banks, the federal housing administration, the justice department, and other agencies to help home buyers with lower credit scores, but who might not be able to make mortgage -- who might be able to make mortgage payments now, but can't qualify because the bank is still cautious and tight with the lending standards. critics worry is sews seeds for another financial crisis and taxpayer bailout. >> this is a bad mistake, and it was shown to be a bad mistake by what happened in 2008. we would not have had a financial crisis if we had not followed policies that were intended to increase home ownership by making financing available to people who otherwise would not be able to get mortgages. >> the boom and bust were not caused by providing 30-year fixed rate mortgages to generally qualified families. it was caused by

for daily use and a 30-tablet free trial. >>> the obama administration is pushing for banks to make home loans available to americans with weaker credit. cnbc's eamon javers joining us now with more of the details. eamon? >> good evening, brian. the "washington post" reported this story this morning. let me walk you through the details of what they say is a campaign by obama administration officials to push banks to loosen their lending standards when it comes to home mortgages. the "post" saying that the obama administration wants those banks to begin to lend again post-crisis. they say they've ratcheted the standards up too high and they want the banks to use those taxpayer-backed programs that enable them to do it and they're also urging the department of justice to reassure banks they won't be subject to prosecution or investigation if they move toward lending to people with lower credit scores. apparently, obama administration officials now feeling that some of the bank loan requirements of 20% down and near pristine credit scores are too high and that's hurting the housing recovery

, president obama telling congress that this proposal should not be a partisan issue. >> this should not be a partisan idea. you know, i know washington people just like to argue. i guess it gets them on tv. but the fact is, you have the chamber of commerce and the afl-cio agreeing to a better infrastructure, knowing that it will of both businesses and workers. if you have a chamber and the unions agreeing and the politicians should be allowed to agree, to. lou: in other words, he just wants everyone to agree because the chamber of cmerce and the afl-cio do so. not every american, mr. president, want to follow the lead of the chamber of commerce or the afl-cio. and on at least one level mr. obama is right. it should not be a partisan issue because neither political party should be calling for higherpending when the federal government is running almost trillion dollar deficits and the national debt amounts to almost $70 trillion. that does not seem to me to be a partisan issue and all, just one of common sense and good judgment and responsibility. the center of the president's plan is

're most likely just a few weeks away from the obama administration's final decision on whether to give the keystone pipeline a thumbs up or thumbs down. on the eve of the keystone decision, safe to say nearly every environmentalist in washington believes the president will let this happen. but don't underestimate the impact that this story might have on the approval process. a 65-year-old pipeline ruptured in the town of mayflower, arkansas, 22 miles spewing thousands of barrels of oil through a housing development, across lawns and down residential streets. >> so that is a pipeline that is busted and has flooded the neighborhood. and is going all the way to the drain at the end of the street. the smell is unbelievable. i mean, look. incredible. and that is oil. >> oil on the streets of a residential community. exxon is still cleaning up the spill. the question is will pictures like these give environmentalists another opportunity to lobby the president and the new secretary of state john kerry on keystone. last night on chris hayes' new show "all in," one argued the damage in arkansas
